There is something called constructive eviction. The landlord is required to provide a safe and habitable premises in exchange for your rent.If they do not, through failure to repair a maintenance issue they are liable for, you can move out and terminate the lease by declaring a constructive eviction. The landlord will also be liable to you for your damages, as this is a breach of your lease.
